•Course Purpose
This is a companion course to Fundamentals of Physics III, and offers practical exercises for mastering the concepts introduced in those lectures. Students enrolled in Fundamentals of Physics III are strongly urged ro enrol this tutorial course.

The aims of this course are to deepen students’ understanding of basic Physics of
electricity and magnetism and to cultivate their ability to apply Physics knowledge to problem-solving.

Students will significantly improve their understanding of the elementary Electricity and Magnetism introduced in the FPIII course, as well astheir proficiency in solving simple related problems.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Fundamentals of Physics 1 and 2. Concurrent enrolment in Fundamentals of Physics 3.

•Course Topics
Students must solve problems and present their solutions during the tutorial. Topics covered include (Chapter references are to the textbook by Resnick, Halliday and Walker):

Chapter 21: Electric Charge

Chapter 22: Electric Fields

Chapter 23: Gauss’ Law

Chapter 24: Electric Potential

Chapter 25: Capacitance

Chapter 26: Current and Resistance

Chapter 27: Circuits

Chapter 28: Magnetic Fields

Chapter 29: Magnetic Fields Due to Currents

Chapter 30: Induction and Inductance

The WileyPlus website has many useful videos and worked examples. You should explore the resources available on that website

•Additional Reading
Leighton, R.B. & Feynman, R.P., Feynman Lectures on Physics (Volume 2), Pearson.

This is a Year 2 level textbook, but even in Year 1 it is very useful.

•Grade Assessment
Class attendance is required. Absentee must give a valid reason.

Class Attendance, performance and attitude: 10%; Assignments 45%; Tutorial reports, quizzes 45%.
The "Absent (W)" grade is reserved for students who withdraw by the official deadline in May. After that day, a letter grade will be awarded based on marks earned from all assessment during the semester.

If FPT2a is NOT A COMPULSORY SUBJECT and the student plans never to take FPT2a in the future, then a late withdrawal request will be considered.

Live lectures via MS Teams (Online only). Before the start of semester students should ensure that they have correctly installed MS Teams using their THERS (国立大学法人東海国立大学機構 ) email account.

All lectures will be live via MS Teams (online only).

A lecture video will be available immediately after each lecture to help with student revision.

The lecturer will be available at most times during the day to answer questions via Teams chat.
